The 2020s are predicted to be a decade when cutting-edge technology meets nature. In the dawn of a new era, we find ourselves seeking soothing, calming colour palettes to help us reduce the stress and anxiety of our increasingly dense lives. We push towards chemical-free lifestyles, eco-friendly practices and most importantly – good health. Neo mint comes as the embodiment of these values, highlighting the unity of science and sustainability as the only way forward.
Neo mint is a pastel hue of green that is forecasted to become the shade of 2020. It is yet to be seen if Neo mint will live up to these expectations, but one thing is certain – it is already hitting the runways and major furniture fairs.
If you’ve been following closely you’ll remember that we already reported spotting it at IMM Cologne 2018 and Milan Design Week 2019. Pantone’s Greenery of 2017 was also on its trail but didn’t dip enough into the modern fantasy vibe that makes Neo mint so attractive to many.
Both retro and futuristic at the same time, Neo mint suggests happiness and optimism while, similar to Pantone Living Coral, at the same time turning our alarms on.
Gender neutral as it is, Neo mint appeals to everyone. It’s fresh and powerful, with a distinctive summery feel, so I can hardly imagine it not hitting the highlights. However, we are yet to see the longevity of its future fame.
I was dancing on a fine line between nostalgia and modernity with this one. Warmer tones of Neo mint furniture begged for some golden accents and black details to up the sophisticated mood I was aiming at, while, I admit it, I just couldn’t help but introduce at least a couple of peachy highlights.
What do you say? Would you give it a go?
